Sylvia was born Aug 18, 1932 in Maybridge, SK where she also attended school. In 1951 she married Mike, the love of her life and on July 14th they celebrated 67 years. They moved to Kamsack in 1952 and she worked at Parks Café, Red & White, Robinsons, and Kamsack Lumber. Sylvia was very active in the Jaycettes, Ukrainian Orthodox Church teaching Sunday School, and secretary of the Ladies Auxiliary. Sylvia was quite athletic. She played ladies softball, competed at Western Canadians in 5 pin bowling, and was an avid golfer – even aced a hole in one. Sylvia’s favorite past times were gardening, camping, fishing trips, cooking, extensive travel abroad, and winters in Arizona. In 1982 Mike & Sylvia purchased a cottage at Madge Lake. They had an open door policy where everyone was welcome. She cherished visits and celebrations with family and friends which created traditions. One of her greatest joys was having everyone gather together to share her meal when the dinner bell rang. This special lady will be remembered for her strong faith, cherished life-long friendships, and her unwavering dedication to all her family.
